not invent this strategy of trying to get his way on policy. remember george w. bush after he was reelected. george w. bush took off an a tour of the country at the start of his second term. what president bush was barn storming the country with to call americans to action about was his idea we should privatize social security. >> i like going around the country. i am going to keep telling people we've got a problem until it sinks in. >> it did not sink in and we did not turn social security over to wall street the way president bush suggested. that is less a caution for the current president, that president's broadly speaking shouldn't try to involve their public in their policy causes. it seems less a caution for president's broadly speaking on trying to do that than it is a specific cautionary tale about trying to involve the public in your cause when the public hates your cause, when the public doesn't agree with you. president obama has the public on his side. president george w. bush was touring the country behind an idea that was wildly unpopular. for president obama, people already
, i go gangdom, and all of it after this. >> in 2004, george w. bush runs 44% of the latino vote. this year mitt romney got a measly 28%. if he had gotten even 35% he would have won the pop already vote, mitt romney, and maybe the presidential election. so for the first time it can be said conclusively, but probably not the last time, the latino vote was decisive in this election. bearing that in mind here is craig with the senior latino senator, bob menendez, democrat of new jersey. >> i think what was incredibly encouraging was to see a significant increase in latino turnout. >> senator men anyone des, -- menendez when you learned the latino vote was the decides factor in the leaks, what was your reaction? >> a coming of aim. -- coming of age, this community has grown so in the country. served in the armed forces of the united states over many, many wores, contributed economically, finally here was the constantly referred to sleeping giant awakening. >> the awakened giant was enormous. 71% of the vote. making the difference in states like florida, virginia, new mexico, and colo

! >> just by way of comparison, in the twine fiscal year, the last of george w. bush's presidency, the fiscal year goes -- federal spending rose by 17.9% from the 2.98 trillion to 2.52 trillion. in fiscal 2010, the first budget under obama spending fell 1.3% to $2.36 trillion. >> you say that like it's's good thing. i'm flabbergasted. >> who uses the word flabbergasted anymore? >> stephanie: john boehner. >> cracky. >> stephanie: the big surge in federal spending happens in fiscal 2009 before obama took office. the 2009 fiscal year which republicans count as part of obama's legacy isn't that handy? brought on by george w. bush. >> flabbergasting. >> stephanie: it is like george w. bush ran over a pack of cub scouts drunk and barack obama shows up. look at what you did here. see what you presided over? >> shows up in the ambulance. >> look what you did! >> stephanie: oh my god. no i'm emt. it began four months before obama moved into the white house. the major spending decision in the 2009 fiscal year were ma

. and of course he's talking about when george w. bush tried restructure social security, couldn't broker a deal in the home. is there a chance that the president is overreading the mandate, that we know the american people agree with him about taxes on the rich, but anything else is fair game? >> no. i don't think there's a comparison between those two at all. what bush made the mistake of is that the u.s. public does not support ending or privatizing social security. there have been poll after poll about raising taxes on the 1% of the u.s. public, the wealthiest. and poll after poll shows that close to 70% of the u.s. public agrees with that. there was no poll that ever showed that the u.s. public agreed with privatizing social security. >> most americans know that a big driver of the deficit and the biggest expenses we have are entitlements. you said grover norquist house of cards may come crumbling down. is the bigger problem revenue or democrats not wanting to give big cuts on entitlement? >> no. i think the bigger problem is grover norquist if you want to know the truth. he's the bigger pr
creation, economic growth, and economic performance by every measure than the years after george w. bush reduced the highest marginal tax rates. the evidence seems to point in the opposite direction, higher taxes on the wealthy help the economy, and don't hurt the economy. >> eliot: that is exactly the point that warren buffet has made over and over again. the preeminent investor over the years. he said i'm a capitalist. i want to make money. listen to robert reich. from an ideological point of view it seems to me from the inception of the republican party they want to cut taxes cut taxes this has been an effort to starve the beast. to say that there is no money for government, and you must cut the agenda. that seemed to be the agenda from the early reagan revolution revolution. >> david stockman came up with the phrase starve the beast. he understood if you go deeper and deeper into debt and reduce tax rates in particularly on the wealthy, at the same time everybody else is just getting by the minimum wage became stagnant in the 80s. the middle class paid less taxes and the wealthy pai

basically -- basically, they are tony blair to george w. bush's margaret thatcher. they have said, we have to keep 98% of the bush tax cuts in place for the betterment of the economy. >> it's so much bigger than that. >> they have won. >> republicans won. >> we have won. tax breaks. >> so to give a couple of percentage points to 2% of people. >> it could be so much bigger because the conversation has been shifted to how do we reduce our deficit. >> brian sullivan, thank you so much. greatly appreciate your insights. thanks for being with us on "way too early." you can catch brian on cnbc's "street signs" at 2:00 p.m. he is the hardest working man in show business, or at least on the other side of the river. >>> coming up this morning, we've got republican senator tom coburn. can't wait to talk to tom. also, tom cole will be here on set. that's great. we're going to ask him what he was thinking last week. i'm joking. congressman. also, democratic senator claire mccaskill. can you believe this? and congressman chris van hollen. also, we're going to bring in former national security adviser d
was a statistical tie between al gore and george w. bush, the country does move on and we head to the next election. >> i always say to people, look, mitt romney didn't come all that close to winning. he didn't come as close as i thought he might. one quick other follow-up on this, the thing i've been struck by, does mitt romney retain a constituency within the repub c republican party? he was the nominee. he got the votes. but it doesn't seem like he's having much influence. he's not in office right now so is not doing -- i don't see him returning to an office. he's not going to run for president again. does he kind of just shuffle off to the side? >> it really seems that way. one of the more amazing things is the imprint he had on the republican party, its ideas, seem so little right now particularly just weeks after the presidential election. you can make the argument even john mccain who lost decisively in 2008, all the republicans and the tea party people who are demanding an end to earmarks, there was john mccain, and very little -- one of the calls mitt romney ended up having that republica
their hands and george w. bush won with a higher popular vote total than in 2000 and he had increased the republican majorities in the house, and the senate. the first time a president had done that since fdr. and yet, the democrats came back to win the house in 2006. the presidency, the house and the senate in 2008. and there have been wild swings from one election to the next and there will be again, but don't go wobbly now, instead, go boldly forward to explain why you are right because i believe you are (applause) >> thanks, all right. instead of working with congress face-to-face to save the economy, president obama is trying to get his way by doing what he does best, campaigning, and making speeches about the fiscal cliff despite knowing that deadline was looming, the president never presented a plan until this week and the reception on capitol hill was, to say the least, chilly. senator mcconnell even laughed at the proposal when it was presented to him. joining me now, florida congressman allen west. colonel, thanks so much for being here. >> thanks, thanks for having me, dan
of the republican party, president george w. bush weighed in on immigration reform and bucked the self-deporting show me your papers rhetoric that has overtaken the gop in recent years. w. leaned on the sentiment of compassionate conservatism that first got him elected to the white house. >> not only do immigrants help build our economy, they invigorate our soul. america can be a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. as our nation debates the proper course of action related to immigration, i hope we do so with a benevolent spirit and keep in mind the trun countrybution of immigrants. >> he said immigrants will build, quote, a dynamic nation for this nation. the republicans need the support of immigrants to keep their party. latino voters broke for democrats 71 to 27. give those numbers which are abysmal at best for the republicans, are you -- well, a, the return of w., nice to see him. we always love playing sound from the former president. >> jon stewart will be happy. >> yes. >> will republicans actually embrace what george bush is calling for, which is a more incl
